Go To The Pinnacle Of Watchmaking Craftsmanship: Bulgari’s 2016 New Octo Watch

Since the launch of the world’s thinnest tourbillon movement Finissimo Tourbillon, this technology has set a new benchmark on the altar with the extremely slim appearance combined with the most sophisticated and sophisticated technology. Octo Finissimo Skeleton 2016 Presents the ultra-thin process with the new Ultrarano.

   Octo watches will continue to explore the infinite possibilities of ultra-thin movements. Bulgari first introduced the world’s thinnest tourbillon watch in 2014. This time it will release a new masterpiece of the top watch: the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater watch, which becomes the world’s thinnest minute repeater. BVLGARI has once again pushed the limits of timepieces, setting a new record in this extraordinary field. Octo’s unique personality makes it inherently extraordinary. Not only is it a classic, but it is re-launched with a new look in 2016. It is equipped with the world’s thinnest tourbillon movement, infused with a unique watch design, and shows the complicated precision of the hollow ultra-thin movement with a modern black style.

New milestone: Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater
   Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater is a new work of BVLGARI’s original ultra-thin movement watch series. With the simultaneous introduction of the tourbillon and manual movement in 2014, the brand immediately set an unparalleled new milestone in the field of slim timepieces. The chronograph movement is still the most sophisticated top-level watch technology, and only a few top brands retain this unique craft.
   A chronograph watch involves various special structural restrictions and mastery of certain skills to achieve the best results: After the chronograph mechanism is activated, it must emit a clear and pleasant tone with a perfect, harmonious and stable rhythm. It seems simple, but it is not easy. To obtain this set of parameter combinations, you must have extremely professional and advanced technology, and only a few brands currently have this ability.

The case of the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater is made of titanium: it not only significantly reduces weight, the characteristics of this low-density metal ensure the best sound diffusion.

   In addition, these guidelines apply to timepieces that are generally large enough. Because of their wide internal space, they can produce the best sound propagation speed in the case and further ensure perfect sound quality. However, for the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater, everything has to start from scratch because the goal is to achieve the perfect sound quality in the smallest space. The numbers are the best proof: the thickness of the BVL Calibre 362 movement developed and manufactured by Bulgari is only 3.12mm, and the overall thickness of the case is only 6.85mm.
From scratch
   When developing the technical characteristics of this timekeeping mechanism, it looks like a blank piece of paper. So BVLGARI’s Le Sentier watch workshop uses a variety of different levels to solve the problem. First of all, the case is made of titanium: not only is the weight significantly reduced, the characteristics of this low-density metal ensure the best sound diffusion. The hour markers on the dial are also made of the same material, with a sculpted hollow design, including a hollow small dial at 6 o’clock, which can increase the resonance in the case and create beautiful sound effects.

The beginning of the development of the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater can be said to be like a blank piece of paper. So BVLGARI’s Le Sentier watch workshop uses a variety of different levels to solve the problem, starting with a design.

   Each solution is backed by another technology. The circular gongs directly attached to the case are individually hand-cast in the production process. There are many different stages to making a complete gong, from the preparation and shaping of stainless steel parts to tones and harmonics. The two hammers of the timekeeping device also pour out the careful craftsmanship. This ultra-thin case is condensed with 362 ultra-miniature parts, and the centrifugal flywheel deceleration mechanism vividly displays the time effect. It includes two inertial governors with a total diameter of only 3.3mm. The button that activates the timekeeping mechanism uses the ‘all or nothing’ security mechanism and is placed in the case at 9 o’clock. This design ensures a continuous water-resistant depth of 50 meters. And this manual winding movement provides a 42-hour power reserve.

The Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater is equipped with a BVL 362 hand-wound movement, measuring only 3.12 mm thick.

   The Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater watch interprets the concept of ‘thinness’ with an innovative model of thinking, and lays the foundation for mechanical technology and classic complex performance with a new method. At the same time, it still keeps the brand’s advantage and consolidates the top watch Tradition. The Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater watch is about to become a watch star, with a limited edition of 50 pieces.
